This look is moving among nicely. I am enjoying it and am excited about how it’s turning out! Trapeze is even helping me, lol!
So, of course the bodice is silk, what else? This silk I have used before. Maybe because it’s gorgeous and substantial, and a joy to work with. Feels lovely too :o) I didn’t take as many shots in progress as I sometimes do. When I get rolling, I forget to stop and take pics :o/
When I paused long enough to take a shot, this is how it looked…. The main bodice is well on the way. Clearly the other half of the bust needs doing and something attractive on the shoulder. Maybe a strap :o)
As I mentioned last time, I thought long and hard about what to use for the bottom texture. (I tried a whole bunch of options that weren’t even pic worthy, in my opinion.) I went, in the end with pure cotton gauze!
I made a silk under skirt as a base for the gauze and then sewed the gauze on by hand with fine lingerie thread, gathering as I went. I wanted more “cloud” up at the top hip, gently tapering down…..
Here’s a shot of the gauze during the gathering.
Trapeze holds the needle for me! (And refuses to take off the rhinestone wig!) Can you blame her. Dang, she looks good in this wig!
The silk bodice is lined in lighter weight silk charmeuse.
The look has an ErtÃ© feel to it. Which is nice ’cause I’m a big fan of his work :o)
However, at some point Trapeze will have to take off the ~Shine!~ wig, ’cause that’s not what I have in mind for this outfit!
Trapeze works this look and it isn’t even finished! A true diva!
I’d say I’m about half finished this one. It still need the bodice finished and a more permanent strap, also footwear and head covering/wig……
Until next time! Thanks for reading and enjoy your day :o)
